Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage
Great recipe, but be sure to set the temperature on your cooker high enough to keep the liquid slightly boiling (my cooker doesn't have low and high but temp settings). Even though this cooked for 10 hours while I was at work, lentils still were not completely cooked. Bringing things up to a rolling boil for about 30 minutes finished things off nicely, though. Family loved this dish, perfect for days when it's a little cold out. Will definitely be putting this into regular rotation.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken
I have made this dish twice in a week and loved it both ways I made it! First time I followed directions exactly and thought it was fabulous, but my wife said it was too salty for her taste. Second time out, I cut the soy sauce back to 1/2 cup, added 1/4 cup water to compensate. Definitely was less salty (and not as tasty for my palate) but wife was pleased. I will confess to being a saltaholic, so those who don't care for salty food may want to cut back on the soy or use low-sodium soy sauce. Either way you do it, this is a great recipe for the middle of the week when you need something simple yet delicious for the slow cooker.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken
Followed the recipe as is, using Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, and my wife and I found it sickeningly sweet. Definitely needs something spicy added to offset the sweetness. If I try this again I'll using a HOT BBQ sauce, not sugar-based BBQ sauce, to balance out the pineapple and sugar. Or maybe add chopped red chiles like General Tsao's Chicken to give it some kick. BTW, our friend, who sprinkles sugar on ice cream, loved this dish.
